3M™ ElectroCut Film is a transparent acrylic film often used in place of silk screened inks to provide background copy and logos for retroreflective signs. Series 1170 films are compatible with a variety of 3M™ Reflective Sheeting used in permanent signage. Coated with a transparent, pressure-sensitive adhesive, this film includes a special liner designed to help make kiss-cutting easier when working with cutting machines. This film offers equal or improved retroreflective performance over sheeting screened with transparent inks and is available pre-punched for sprocket-fed cutters.
Series 1170 film is part of 3M's system of matched components and is specifically developed to provide optimal cutting, weeding, lifting, and transfer features when used with electronic cutting machines. It is dimensionally stable and intended for application over 3M™ Reflective Sheeting to economically produce street name signs and other single copy traffic control signs. Guaranteed for same number of years as the 3M sheeting to which it is applied. See Product Bulletin 1170 for details.
